G . F Smith and CupCycling collaborated on 'Extract,' a line of high-end paper stationery that is made from recycled coffee cups.

In the process of turning a takeaway cup into a usable sheet of paper, CupCycling uses a zero-waste process that involves removing the plastic coating from the cups to create pulp. In all, it takes about 81 cups to make 18 sheets of paper.

The Extract collection features some of the most vibrant colors that can be found in nature, offering a celebration of the natural world and highlighting a key issue when it comes to single-use products like takeaway coffee cups. Ultimately, G . F Smith aims to work towards eliminating coffee cup waste altogether.
